Our aim at Grangewood Lodge is to provide a happy relaxed and friendly atmosphere offering sanctuary from anxiety and stress enabling residents to enjoy a high quality of life in a unique setting.
We recognise the necessity for residents to feel completely relaxed and at home. Accordingly, residents are encouraged to bring their own furniture and personal possessions to make their room as familiar and homely as possible.
Particular attention is paid to the dignity and individuality of residents at Grangewood. Individual needs and abilities are constantly monitored and where possible we encourage residents to play a major role in the decisions regarding their day to day lifestyle.
